    Jul 27, 2010, 6:22 PM - WIP: SE Damaged Jetpack #1

    So I've been looking at the actual SE Damaged Jetpack for quite sometime. I've decided to attempt to make one. I am no pro with this stuff but its a work in progress. I decided to post a few pics of my progress. I just started to glass the jetpack and will continue to work on it for the next few months.

    I'm using just foam-core (from walmart or target), poster board, and paper. Then I'm fiber glassing the whole thing and we'll see what happens.

    Can't tell if that comment was serious or not?
    Good luck with the build, quite an adventurous project

    Still am fiberglassing the pack. Its quite hard working with fiberglass when its extremely humid outside. The pack should be done being glassed by sometime next week and then I can update some pics.

    That is awesome and your initial pic is pretty much how the initial pack looked at ILM. They took a complete pack and just dremeled out a huge gash in the back. Will be cool to see the final of this!

    I've always wanted to build this version of the pack... but was hoping better reference material would became available. Will be watching this thread

    Ok so I've been on vacation this past week so I havent done much but I put a coat of primer on the JP just to take a picture of the progress. There is still a LOT of sanding, and bondo to get it to where I want but between vacation and school, its quite a hand full. But Just wanted to post what I have so far.
